Recent M.A.C. swatch: Vintage Grape Blush Ombre from Daphne Guinness

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

So the Daphne Guinness collection from M.A.C. came out right after Christmas and there was only one item that I wanted from this limited edition collection –  the Vintage Grape Blush Ombre.  The Blush Ombres were first introduced about 2 years ago with the Spring Colour Forcast collection.  I missed out on this and all everyone spoke about were these blush ombres; how versatile, how amazing, how cute etc.   These things sold like hot bread and I showed up after de bakery closed!

So I promised myself to pick up Vintage Grape if it was ever repromoted.  And here it is!

Hey guys!

This collection is debuting in North American stores and counters on January 5th and internationally in February 2012.  It’s a collaboration between the style icon Iris Apfel and M.A.C. I am somehow loving this promo!  The inspiration is exotic and rare birds.

Here are the details…

This collection comes out tomorrow, Sept 15th in the US and Canada and in October internationally.  It is already being sold online at maccosmetics.com as well as other online retailers, such as Nordstrom.

This is a limited edition collection featuring some classic items, paint pots and mattene lipsticks.  Needless to say, I will be ALL OVER this collection!  I love the versatility of the paintpots to be used as an eyeshadow base or as a cream eyeshadow.  I have one or two of the original Mattene lipsticks, so that I am anxious to see what this new batch has to offer.

Semi Precious haul & swatches!!

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

Here are a few swatches of what I hauled from M.A.C.’s Semi Precious collection.  I am a true sucka for their mineralized eye shadows.  For whatever reason, the texture and quality is never consistent from collection to collection.  Sometimes they are flaky, chunky, not heavily pigmented and often they look pretty in the pan than on the lid.  So I had to make sure to choose wisely.

Across the collection of eye shadows, they have varying levels of pigmentation and many of colours are not unique.  They were all very smooth in texture and have varying amounts of marbling so that two eye shadow pans could give slightly different colours.

I loved the jewelled themed collection and was of course drawn to the darker colours.

I first got Dark Indulgence, which is a dark, sooty emerald green melanged with black.
